“A slightly confused blast from the past.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

I wouldn't go to Darien to go to the Sugar Bowl, but sure would stop here again. It's a diner/luncheonette that might has time traveled from the 50s, 60s or 70s; it appears to be a mix of all three decades. With brightly-colored plastic lawn furniture, formica tables and an old-school counter, it would be eccentric enough without the various Americana articles packing every available space.

The coffee is good, the breakfast food acceptable, and the minimal staff is friendly. It looks like a place frequented by locals and people like us, early morning travelers in need of coffee. Which really was good. And it was a fun way to start the day.

“Best in Ct!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

This is my very favorite place in Ct for breakfast and lunch. Nestled in the quaint liitle town of Darien, the Sugar Bowl promises a homemade meal of the highest quality... And the muffins and plum cake are worth the drive or train stop... (Which is around the back practically). I absolutely adore the owner, and every time you step in there ... You get a friendly smile and a great meal!
